, give us a call a 202-585-3881. our line for republicans. 202-585-3808 for democrats. and a line for independents, end us an email at journal @c-span.org or send us a tweet at c-span wj. caller: thank you very much for taking my call. i wanted to make a comment on secretary of state's press conference yesterday and the press briefing that followed. the entire tone and tenor was that somehow this was our fault. i don't understand why it is we own this problem. they have been fighting each other over there for centuries. why is it all of a sudden america's fault? and i couldn't agree more with the previous callers that say we should not give any more money to any nation that behaves this way. detroit is bankrupt. sacramento, california, is bankrupt. we have huge, huge problems over here as far as infrastructure. i think we should take care of our own. i'm a first generation american and i can tell you, these countries, we give money -- they don't share our values, they don't share our beliefs, they don't have the same respect for human life that we do. we have absolutely no busines

. we have a serious problem. it requires us to have a national discussion because the problem, mainly, is the drug cartels and the violent side of is a demand for drugs in the united states of america. whether they have a submarine, like i have seen in colombia. it is a violent place when you have armed members bringing drugs across the border into our country. i do not excuse any action that .ook place but to somehow think it is not dangerous when cartel members are bringing drugs up to this country is not an adequate reading of the situation on the border, and i visit it all the time. said, i think the answer to our border control is technology. you have a point about additional border patrol. one of the things we need more of is customs people so we can .xpedite traffic back and forth there are some of us here old enough to remember we used to be able to walk across and have and walkedgales back. think about doing that today. you bring up problems on the border, and with this surveillance capability, we will people back,keep and then we will be able to send these teams out. finally

it does not do to assist the u.s., has been helpful in some ways. he may talk about their cooperation after the boston marathon bombings or some of their assistance with respect to what's been going on in afghanistan, being able to get supply lines through and that sort of thing. but on some very key, very public issues, there's been a really chilly reaction to what the president has been saying and what vladimir putin's steps have been that assigning of asylum for as much as a year for edward snowden has put a real spotlight on the relationship. it's easier at the ministerial level for those conversations to go on today with secretaries it hagel and kerry. on the presidential level, when you sort of pit barack obama and vlad mifr putin t gets even more tense. i'm sure he'll be asked about that. and with respect to these nsa programs, there are foreign policy implications, of course. other countries are paying attention to what gets leaked. other countries are also engaged in their own forms of surveillance, but it does have an influence on foreign policy. >> kelly o'donnell at the wh

for using the only legislative vehicle we is towhat we really need have a serious hearing investigation where you actually hold people accountable and you look at the law and you change it. you do not have the same director or deputy -- there have multiple people. people under investigation right now. there will be laws. if you look at the financial services bill that has gone through appropriations. not only is the irs defunded for but they have cut the budget. i think the same thing needs to happen with the possible examination of the nsa. but i do not think we ought to immediately toss out a program until we think about it and look at it, you know, and the homeland security people on both sides of the aisle tell us it has done the job. >> ok. one thing i would like to point out though -- if the program were abused, we would not know. let me rephrase that. we would not know it until it was too late. know or have i read that the way this deal was supposed to work was when the controversy first kind of started, they were going to monitor these phone calls to find terrorists outside the
